Dr. James Scobie (played by Rick Deats) was the husband of Joan Scobie and a scientist who worked at the Morley tobacco company with Peter Voss and planned to testify against them for using human test subjects, including Darryl Weaver. Scobie provided the test cigarettes to Weaver, but contact with him led to Scobie's death. Despite intense protective measures taken by Walter Skinner and the FBI in protecting Scobie, he was killed after tobacco beetles hatched inside his lungs and ate their way out of his body, leaving a horrific corpse with its respiratory system completely ravaged.
